Take the T1D for a Day Text Challenge!


Step into the shoes of someone living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) for one day in an eye-opening text campaign made possible through the generous support of Lilly Diabetes. In just a single day, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the challenges people with T1D face.

Sign up today, or any day in November, and you’ll receive multiple text messages over 24 hours from professional snowboarder Sean Busby. Sean has lived with T1D for nine years and has backcountry snowboarded on six continents (including Antarctica!). Each of his messages will show you what it’s like to manage the blood glucose testing, insulin injections, and dietary choices that T1D requires every day.

Hear what Sean has to say about T1D for a Day:

Text T1D4ADAY to 63566. You’ll receive a confirmation text that completes your registration.

• If you sign up before November 1, your T1D for a Day challenge will begin the morning of November 1.
• If you sign up from November 1 through November 30, your T1D for a Day challenge will begin within an hour of registration.

When you take on T1D for a Day, you’ll be helping Breakthrough T1D create a world without T1D. Please use hashtag #T1D4aDay to spread the word on social media. Thank you!

Participation in T1D for a Day is free of charge. (You may receive up to 45 messages.)
